Resort Consulting Advocates is yet another timeshare exit company offering services to get you out of your timeshare. The company is based in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
The website content is very thin, but there is some info on the FAQ page. On this page Resort Consulting Advocates explains that their service is to get you out of your timeshare. Pretty straight forward. The second FAQ is concerning because Resort Consulting Advocates claims that children are required to inherit timeshare if there is a “perpetuity” clause written in the contract. This is a lie used by timeshare exit companies to make owners feel like they need to hire a timeshare exit company to prevent the kids from inheriting it. The truth is, if the kids don’t want the timeshare upon your death, they do not have to take it. Simple as that.
And that’s it. There isn’t much else information on the website. Not even a phone number. Heading over to the company’s Facebook page and we do see a phone number though along with a few reviews. The three most recent reviews are one star. One review says Resort Consulting Advocates does not answer phone calls, which is not a good sign.
Heading over to BBB page and we see 4 complaints as of 1/4/19. According to a few of the complaints, it appears Resort Consulting Advocates is holding in-person “consultation” meetings with timeshare owners at local hotels. At these “consultation” meetings, owners are provided with strategies to exit their timeshare and are offered the chance to buy a Resort Consulting Advocates vacation club.
The company lures owners to these meetings by offering free gifts, such as one couple that received an Android tablet and $50 Visa gift card. Sound familiar? This is the same as how a timeshare resort developer lures people to their meetings – free gifts.
A search for this company name on Google brings up an article on Ardaroc.org that says Resort Consulting Advocates is in no way affiliates with ARDA or ARDA-ROC. ARDA is short for the American Resort Development Association and is large respected organization within the timeshare industry. Sometimes companies will say they are associated with a bigger, more respected company to fool others in to thinking they are a trustworthy company.
Overall, there are way too many red flags with this company for us to recommend them. We’re unsure whether or not Resort Consulting Advocates charges an up-front fee, but the simple fact that ARDA has issued a warning about them tells you all you need to know. Learn more escrow and why you should never pay an up-front fee when cancelling your timeshare.
